Have you ever asked yourself what your childhood taught you about race?

I read this great paper by Robin DiAngelo, who looks at how people think about and deal with race and diversity, particularly white people. She came up with a set of six questions people can ask themselves.

For six Sundays, I’m going to post one of DiAngelo’s six questions, as I rewrote them so they’re not just for white people.

You can find all these questions under the tag “Childhood teaching about race.”

Question #4

If people of races, ethnicities, and countries of origin other than my own did live in my neighborhood, was I encouraged to make friends with them or to socialize with them?
